Hi Karen-

Your gggrandmother, Alice Lucy Edelen (1843-1883), was a daughter of James Edelen (1813-1897) and Elizabeth Riney (1811-1878). Alice's christening record survives at St Rose's in Washington Co, KY. She was baptized on 4 May 1843 with Priscilla (Lincoln) Edelen as her godmother.
James Edelen (1813-1897) was a son of Robert Edelen (1784-1855) and Elizabeth Hester Riney (1788-1859). Robert Edelen was a son of George Edelen (????-1810) and Sarah Edelen (1763-1848), daughter of Edward Edelen, gent. (ca. 1717-1780) and Susanna Wathen of "Assington," Newport Hundred, Charles Co, MD.
I descend from George and Sarah (Edelen) Edelen through their daughter, Louisa Edelen (1794-1877), who married John Abraham Rhodes on 14 Oct 1817 in Washington Co, KY. They later settled in Big Spring Precinct, Meade Co, KY.
Hope this helps out.

Todd Whitesides
